Kovalainen and Petrov ‘sign’ for Queens Park Rangers

6th July 2012

Formula One drivers Heikki Kovalainen and Vitaly Petrov teamed up with Queens Park Rangers football club duo Clint Hill and Djibril Cisse for a special penalty-based car stunt, this week.

They joined forces as the countdown to the weekend's British Grand Prix gathered pace, with the drivers giving the players a taste of the Caterham Drive Experience in a special trick event.

The newly-formed teams of Kovalainen and Cisse along with Petrov and Hill, were tasked with sliding the rear of their cars to hit a football and send it into the back of the net, as if taking a penalty.h

Commenting on the experience French striker Cisse told www.qpr.co.uk: "It was a great experience. I'm a big fan of cars, so it was great to get behind the wheel with Heikki.

"The ability these drivers have is incredible and it was great to see the way they handle the cars."

Held at several venues across the UK on a variety of dates, the Caterham Drive Experience invites motorists to perform stunts in one of the firm's many sports cars.
